With the merger of John Smith Academy and Metro Black Magic comes professional coaching and management, as well as enhanced training for youth soccer players in the Metro West area. The development of each player is the emphasis of every team in every age group. A top quality coaching staff, directed by an NSCAA Premier Coach in Felicity Day, will strive to bring out the best in each player, while working hard to improve each player's weakness. All of our teams will compete at the highest level possible in Massachusetts. We recognize the importance that soccer may play in our player's college experience. Our coaches will guide each player who is interested in playing at the college level through the process, including writing recommendations, contacting potential coaches, etc.
Each new player selected to play on a JSSA team will receive the following:
